Florida Grads Seeing Healthy Job Market

Florida Job Market Image

Recent college graduates in Florida are starting to see a healthy job market, with some from the Class of 2011 considering multiple job offers.

The Sun Sentinel reports that students with postsecondary degrees on their resumes are starting to benefit from the modest economic recovery. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 41% of recent college graduates have so far received a job offer.

The news agency reports that in Florida, graduates in accounting and information technology are seeing the most success.

Recruiter Dan DeNisco told the news agency that students looking to enter their career field should start looking for a job before graduation. He said that most employers begin looking at potential candidates in the late summer or early fall before graduation. He also suggests that students need to hone their communications skills no matter which field they are looking to enter.

According to DeNisco, students who have experience in their field through an earlier internship will also have a leg up on the competition.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that professionals with advanced degrees can earn $1,000 more per week than those with some or no college education.
